A good copper/amber with a clean white head. The nose is subtle with a hint of smoke that is supported by the taste of this and some dry honey notes. Dry finish in the hop as well but there is a sherry like flavour similar to Jenlain to round it out. Similarly pleasing as well.

humlelala (1374) - DENMARK - MAR 3, 2012
(33 cl bottle from Brødrene D; BBD: Jan 26th 2013) Pours a clear amber with lively carbonation and a medium, white head. Good retention and a little lace. Aroma is yeasty (basement) with bready notes and not much trace of hop. Oily texture, medium body, slightly sweet finish. Taste is mildly sweet with a little bitterness towards the end. Interesting but still confirming to me that biere de garde really isn’t my cup of tea. Girlfriend says: "It’s some kind of spicy."

MI2CA (1340) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - JUN 25, 2007
750ml - Aroma is nutty caramel malts with a little dark fruit and mellow earthy hops. Pours muddy brown with a big head and great lacing. Flavor matches aroma with some spice tossed in. Palate is smooth and creamy with just a touch of tartness. A very nice BdG.

biz82 (1327) - austin, Texas, USA - JAN 4, 2006
Pours crystal clear amber with a few leasurely bubbles supporting a thin head. Very fruity aroma with toffee and spice and a few vegetable notes. Spicy, earthy caramel flavor with some candy sweetarts. Big, smooth body. Finishes sweet with some floral and candy orange flavors. If it weren’t for the mild astringency and a bit of dirtiness, this beer would be the best Biere de Garde I’ve had. Still great.

eczematic (1325) - Adelaide, AUSTRALIA - FEB 6, 2002
yes yes like it like it. bieres de garde are so varied - none of them taste remotely like each other. slightly sweet, in a stewed apple (skin on) kind of way, with a cashewy raisiny chewiness, and a touch of something savoury, like one of those tough, withered old salamis you get in italian delis. buggered if i know how they get those flavours in there.

JAF737300 (1291) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 23, 2010
Pours deep amber with heavy sweet notes of malt. The first palate shows the heavy sweet malt but then is disipates to a nice spice driven finish.

mephisto (1286) - TAIWAN - AUG 27, 2009
a really tasty brew! it doesn’t look that impressive though: cloudy amber with little white head. but the aroma is fruity with hint of prune. very fruity flavor, sweet but has enough complexity, quite enjoyable.

heykevin (1281) - Decorah, Iowa, USA - MAY 14, 2002
Extremely earthy hop flavor dominates this one. Nice maltiness, rather typical of the biere de garde style, I believe, as I have yet to sample one that wasn’t luciously malty. Some slight metallic flavor comes out toward the end, but reasonably enjoyable.
